Orange Quinoa with Dried Cherries and Pistachios
1 cup quinoa
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup vanilla honey
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup pistachios
Fresh mint leaves for garnish
Bring to a soft boil the orange juice and honey. Add the quinoa. Let it boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover it. Quinoa takes almost the same time to cook as white rice, about twenty minutes. Cook it until the orange juice is reduced. Remove from the heat and chill over night or for at least 4 hours.
1. As a side dish, serve the quinoa with the dried cherries and pistachios on top. Garnish with mint leaves.
2. As breakfast, mix the dried cherries and pistachios with the quinoa and add cold milk.
